One of the two gunmen who opened fire at a “Draw Prophet Muhammad Contest” received a text message a little more than a week earlier from an undercover FBI agent who said, “Tear up Texas.”

Cleveland.com reports the message was sent to Elton Simpson, who responded, “that goes without saying.”

According to an affidavit, the agent sent the text “in an effort to continue their dialogue.”

The information came from an affidavit filed for the arrest of Erick Jamal Hendricks, a North Carolina man accused of trying to recruit people to join ISIS.
